Riva Sail White
Riva: Italian word for shore. It also refers to the legendary wooden yachts of the 60’s, Riva symbolizes the splendor of an era, the time of the roman Dolce Vita and the film festivals in Cannes and Venice, where the sea is the main character.
The low-top sneakers Riva are made through a vulcanization process that glues the raw natural rubber sole to the upper, granting the durability and comfort of this style. Vulcanization was first used in the production of military footwear, however, due to the flexibility and resistance of this kind of construction method, it was early adopted by climbers, skaters and surfers.
These shoes are perfect to spend a day on a yacht, for sailing in a vessel, or just for taking a pleasant walk around the marina, since they fit properly with the on board dress code, that suggests the use of flat white rubber-soled shoes. The nautical inspiration of this model makes it ideal for the good weather, but it is also suitable for all year long.
Riva sneakers are made of recycled cotton, natural india rubber and a fully breathable insole. An organic cork sheet, together with the viscoelastic blanket, sits inside the shoe and create a comfortable layer between the sole and the wearer’s foot. These noble materials provide more comfort, extra height and offer a superior quality compared to other vulcanized trainers.
